EOTD's: Autumnal Orange & Chocolate...

My long weekend didn't get off to the best of starts - was working (remotely) till 1am Friday morning, and the same today, but at least I could sleep in, yay! It appears to be all over and done with now, and I can resume my blogging schedule - which means that for me, Easter starts right now  The theme for these EOTD's is Autumn, and those magnificently rich and earthy shades that go hand in hand with this most precious of seasons...

For this look, I chose Sugarpill Flamepoint - a fabulously bright and stunningly pigmented orange, but I Autumned-it-up by patting it down over a base of Eye of Horus Bronze Amulet Goddess Pencil, and then added Tequila Sunrise from the Sleek Snapshots palette for some glisten and gleam. Turned out to be the perfect match for my hair lol! On the waterline is Eye of Horus Serpentine Sultry, a gorgeous olivey bronze...

My foundation was Rimmel Lasting Finish, got the glow happening with Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Coral Sheen, and added the middle shade from the BYS Coral Me In blush trio. Lips were W7 Fluorescent Orange lipstick...

And the matching jewellery - the big bracelet, ring and earring set was a gift from my parents ...

For look number two, I went for a brown and cream combo, and dived into my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, and chose a blend of Creme Brulee, Haute Chocolate & Amaretto, once again over a base of Eye of Horus Bronze Amulet Goddess Pencil, also on the waterline...

For my face I trotted out my old HG foundation, Lancôme Teint Visionnaire, with Australis Chocolate Truffle Creme Colour for my cheeks, topped with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light. Lips were Starlet Lipstick in Brown Sugar. I'm still working on my hair colour - a tad more brown in it here, and this week I have blonde highlights(!), so who knows where I'll end up, but it sure is fun experimenting...

The necklace and earrings are at least 20 years old! Forgot to include my watch in the picture, but as you can probably imagine, it was in brown tonings...

So there's a couple of my choices to welcome in the cooler weather - what are your favourite hues for Autumn?

Take care of you,

    1. Thanks darling Jasmine - look #2 is a tad more subtle hey, I'm really getting into what I call "neutrals" now xxx

  3. Autumn is always such a relief! I love both of these looks. Did you mean Sleek Snapshots? I haven't heard of Sleek Hotshots. I love seeing the jewellery too.
